Unique learning experiences include:
- a 2nd half-day of Pediatric Neurology continuity clinic during the Pediatrics PGY2 year and
- a month-long Neurology boot camp elective just before starting the PGY3 year.
- Extremely close and cooperative relationships between the Child Neurology, Pediatrics, and Adult Neurology training programs
- Rapidly expanding cohort of residents, faculty, and nurse practitioners that has maintained its sense of “family”
- Most of the Adult Neurology rotations occur during the PGY3 year, allowing focus on Pediatric Neurology during the PGY4 and 5 years, but starting the PGY3 year with Pediatric Neurology rotations
- Joint teaching conferences with Neonatology, Pediatric Critical Care, Pediatric Cardiology, Pediatric Genetics, and Neuroradiology.
- Resident mentoring program; starting PGY1 year
Focus on developing residents as teachers
- For example, our residents teach each other in a self-designed neuroanatomy series. They are prepped for and given feedback about these and other talks.
- Division-wide meetings for faculty and residents are dedicated to educational methods
- Our residents have participated in CoMET(Community of Medical Educators in Training), a program designed for residents and fellows aiming to become the next generation of clinician-educators.
Global health electives are offered in both pediatric and pediatric neurology residency programs, with interested faculty to assist with mentoring. Additionally, Global REACH is a university organization which facilitates worldwide clinical, educational and research collaborations.
Wide opportunities in research and QI
- The University of Michigan prides itself in lacking barriers between groups, and our residents have done projects with Adult Neurology, Sleep Medicine, Genetics, Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, and , as well as basic science labs
- We have a world-famous pediatric health service research program, CHEAR.
- Most residents present a project at a national meeting and many have won local and national research awards.
- Strong emphasis on graded autonomy and responsibility as residents advance and on continuity of care, with residents following their own patients from their PGY2 year onward.
- C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital opened in 2011.
- 12-story inpatient wing and a 9-story outpatient wing
- 1.1 million square feet
- 342 beds, with busy Pediatric, Neonatal, and Pediatric Cardiothoracic ICU’s, ED, and inpatient psychiatric unit.
- Every room in the hospital can support long-term EEG monitoring
- Attached to the adult hospital, balancing function as an independent unit with easy access to Adult Neurology conferences and to Pediatric Neurology continuity clinics during the adult year
- Take a look at Mott and the rest of the medical campus!
- We’re on the top floor; great views!
